comment Validation message review about using ! and using short, direct messages
@SarawutPositwinyu I don't put the ending punctuation on messages like this anymore, it isn't really required. Which ever direction you choose, ensure it's consistent throughout the application. 'Enter the same password' is pretty good, as long as it's clear and brief.
